A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I’d like a yoghurt maker to try out and review. I’d never heard of EasiYo before but my two kids absolutely love having yoghurts for breakfast, lunch and supper so I thought it would be a must-have for us.
I received the red EasiYo maker with two flavours of yoghurt; Vanilla and Blueberries and Cream. Rather conveniently, the kids ate the last few yoghurts we had for their supper last night so I decided it was the perfect time to try out the maker so there would be yoghurt for breakfast. I was hoping anyway- I have a tendency to mess things up the first time I try them out!
I let Violet choose the flavour and she chose the Blueberries and Cream as she loves fruit.
The box contents are pretty simple; the EasiYo maker, the tub to put the yoghurt powder in and some instructions. The maker itself is really lightweight and has grippers on the bottom to stop it sliding around. Or in my case keeps it still whilst the big one kept trying to push it around, curiosity at it’s best as usual.
I found that the instructions are super easy to follow which I was really pleased about, my brain doesn’t work as well as it should at the end of the day!
The Steps for using the EasiYo
- Half fill the jar with tepid water and add the full sachet
- Secure the lid onto the jar and shake well
- Fill the jar with more tepid water to the top, secure the lid and shake again
- Push the spacer into the maker and pour in boiling water to the top of the spacer
- Place the jar on top of the spacer
- Secure the lid onto the maker and leave overnight
First thing this morning the rather excited toddler was asking for yoghurt for breakfast. I pretty much had my fingers crossed that it had worked and we weren’t going to be throwing away the contents.
You could cut the tension with a knife when opening the maker. I’d already warned the big one that we might have to settle for toast…
Fear not, this Mama can also make yoghurt! Using the EasiYo maker I can anyway! The yoghurt itself is full of flavour and super creamy- I obviously joined the kids in having a bowl for breakfast, for review purposes, ahem. You get a lot of yoghurt out of one pack mix too so the rest is in the fridge and should probably last us until early next week. Now we just need to go shopping for more flavours!
You can find the full range of EasiYo makers and yoghurt flavours on their website. You can even get a mini maker which is ideal for making smaller quantities.
Have you tried the EasiYo before? What’s your favourite flavour?
